Though our oldest child is a seventh grade girl, and none of our kids plays sports, we found ourselves Sunday night at a banquet for high school All-Star soccer players. We beamed with pride as one particular senior was called to accept his award, even though we non-soccer people aren’t quite sure what it even means to be on the LL District, Division II, Team 2, Senior team (something like that).
They recently moved and began attending a new church with an established congregation. My friends don’t fit the mold and they can feel it. Their family situations and some past decisions are unsavory compared to the (perceived) squeaky clean people who fill the pews. They haven’t been treated with blatant unkindness, but yet hospitality, friendship, empathy have not been felt.
We are not Norwegian, so we won’t ever totally see the world through his eyes. He is not American, so he cannot use that lens to view the world. But we can make a home together, I believe.
Thank you for reading. It means a lot to me!!
